The Aboriginal Diabetes Program provides educational resources to prevent and manage Type 2 diabetes; an illness that is largely affecting the Aboriginal population and communities.  The program encourages healthy living through physical activity, and healthy nutrition workshops. Workshops are available in Friendship Centres and provide an interactive learning environment for participants to learn about the aspects of health that may contribute to the development of Type 2 diabetes.  In order to enhance program delivery, monthly newsletters on diabetes prevention and management are distributed to Friendship Centres and health related programs, in an effort to facilitate collaboration with other programs.
